My name is Hanna Berkesi, I am in my late twenties and come from Sweden. Six years ago I came to Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Australia on a holiday. I soon fell in love with both the environment and people and after repeated extensions of my holidays I reached the decision that I wanted to stay permanently. I spent the next five years working and living in Australia and I now hold dual citizenships. Upon reaching my goal of achieving Australian citizenship my fiancée and I found ourselves asking ”what’s next?” As a result of missing friends and family from Sweden we decided to move north to try out life in the much cooler land of Vikings, which is where you currently find us.
I’ve built my career in a variety of roles and industries, in small, family owned- and operated companies as well as large corporations, where I’ve gained experience working with both administrational and commercial aspects resulting in great flexibility. I’m not only comfortable wearing many hats, I sincerely enjoy it; I thrive in an environment where no two workdays are exactly the same.
In addition to being flexible and responsive, I’m also organised, particularly when it comes to people and operations. Being both a property-manager and a project-manager has taught me the importance of structure, communication and planning and I’ve managed a large number of real estate properties as well as a broad variety of events. I interact well with customers of all demographics across a variety of stakeholders and know how to deliver a quality experience to customer and clients alike.
Getting to be creative and finding new innovative ways of doing things, as well as seeing the results after delivering a successful project, always gives me a thrill!
I enjoy working with marketing and communications and have extensive experience working with branding, including but not limited to managing Social Media channels, creating communication plans and marketing collateral, building websites and brand profiles. I also have great experience working with sales in a number of different industries and I was awarded the Best Sales Person in Sweden when I ran my own business.
I’m a passionate, up-beat and outgoing person who dives in head-first whenever I set out do something. I work well independently as well as in a group context, I’m a doer and initiative taker and I’m happy to take the role as a leader. I always want to learn new things and develop on a professional and personal level. I’m eager to see what the future has to bring!
During my spare time I enjoy doing yoga, attending sport- and music events and spending quality time with friends and family. I also love taking my camera out and capture the beauty of the nature as well as people. Music is a big part of my life and in my playlist you’ll find everything from acoustic covers to mash-ups and pop music. My favourite drink is orange juice and I’m the type of person that would rather skip the main course and order double desserts (which I enjoy chocolaty!)
I love meeting new people and I’m always looking for new collaborations and projects. Do you think we can create something amazing together? (…I’m sure we can!) Contact me!
